The Grand Prix 4000 S II is even grippier, more durable, and faster than its predecessor. That's because Continental is able to improve their exclusive Black Chili compound just a little bit every year, thanks to their continued dedication to research and development.

What is Black Chili? It's a unique rubber formula with an ultra-dense construction and high silica content, allowing it to deliver outstanding grip and blazing fast speeds. This cutting-edge formula is also optimized for reliability and longevity, making it a great choice when both performance and durability are top priorities.

The GP 4000 S II also features Conti's patented Vectran puncture protection breaker. Vectran was originally developed by NASA in the construction of space shuttles and suits, and Continental has brought its otherworldly lightweight protection to bike tires, making these lightweight tires impressively flat-resistant.

All in all, the GP 4000 S II is Continental's most advanced racing clincher yet, with a truly unique blend of speed, durability, and, now, aesthetics. Thanks to the high-tech materials and years of testing and development, the GP 4000 S II delivers low rolling resistance and superb handling with exceptional puncture protection and higher mileage performance than a typical race tire.

The Grand Prix 4000 S II features a three-ply 330 TPI casing. Kevlar folding bead. Max inflation is 120 PSI. Claimed weight is 205 grams (700c x 23mm)

BEST BALANCE OF, DURABILITY, MILEAGE, PERFORMANCE AND VALUE...

Like many cyclists, I've tried a lot of different high performance tires looking for that one tire that excels at everything. In the end, I use GP4000's on all of my wheels. A few tires have a more supple ride, a few corner better. Other tires are miserable to fit or have weak side walls or get lousy mileage or are prone to flats. GP4000,s just inspire confidence. They corner well in wet and dry, I get excellent mileage, (3,000 mi. plus), average about 1 flat per year, never had a side wall problem and they have relatively low rolling resistance. I've hammered these tires on So. California roads and the GP4000.s always get me home safely.

Great all around tire that is surprisingly fast for something this tough
by Anonymous

Flyover country the GREAT state of Minnesota

Have ridden on this tire for 18 months in 28 width. Have always ridden 23 to 25 but after doing some more research decided to try the 28's. As with many things in life it's hard to admit that everything you thought you knew was right is proven wrong when you finally give in and try. These tires are not slower, they might be a little heavier but not enough to make a difference for most riders. Their toughness is amazing. I finally decided after a summer of riding to buy another set in preparation for spring. The current set has multiple slices that would have flattened other tires.

Pricey, but excellent speed tire. Good grip (I only ride on dry roads). Wife has 1500 miles on hers with one flat (staple). I have about 400 miles on mine, no flats slight wear. As good as my other top tire - Schwalbe One.

GREAT Tire! Surprisingly puncture resistant.
by realniceride
tucson

I was a tried-and-true Grand Prix 4 seasons Tire user for over 10 years. But this summer I decided to put some 25 mm 4000s's on my zip 303 s for a summer trip up to Breckenridge Colorado. I was afraid I would experience more Flats. But I knew going from 23mm to 25mm width, Plus lighter weight, less tread, and using 10lbs. less tire pressure, would add up to less rolling resistance. Which would make my climbing over all the major passes much more enjoyable. And guess what,, it DID!

Even back here in Tucson on some of the chewed up, debris ridden roads, I don't think I've yet to change a flat on a ride.

Until proven otherwise, I'm totally sold on the 4000s. Especially when used on the 25mm width newer carbon fiber wider rims (Zipp,Enve). The ride feels extremely comfortable. Definitely worth trying.

GP4000S II inflates to wider than sidewall spec
by morningglass

GP 4000S II inflates to wider than sidewall spec. After blog search, purchased GP4000S II to ride in Tour of Flanders Sportive. Blog recommendations were to use wider tires inflated to lower pressure to take out some of the harshness of riding on the Flemish cobbles. Measured width of forks, chain stays, and seat stays (eight year old Fondriest carbon frame and Easton fork) and determined not wide enough for 28mm but 25mm should fit. Purchased and mounted 700x25 GP4000S IIs and inflated to 95 psi. Measured width of inflated tires (digital micrometer) was 27.75mm leaving about 1 mm clearance each side between tires and fork and stays. Tires rode well on the cobbles - comfortable, good traction in the damp, and most importantly NO PUNCTURES. Remounted 700x23 other brand tires that had been removed to mount the GP4000s IIs to regain tire-to-forkstays clearance and will use the GP4000s IIs on another bike with greater forkstay widths. Great tires, next time this bike needs tires will probably buy another set of GP4000s IIs in 23mm width.

superb all around tire for all conditions

a very well handling, light, responsive tire. I am using the 25C version and they actually measure out to 27 mm when inflated to 98 psi which is what I run the rear at, the front I run at 92. I weigh an even two bills and have found these tires to be ideal for all seasons as they also provide excellent puncture resistance with the high strength belt Conti uses. Durability is also good, you do want the tire to show wear over time as this indicates the suppleness of the tread. Check 'em out.

About the best race tire on the market that is rugged enough to train on.

I use these for riding, racing all of it. I've never found a tire that performs this well and also holds up to regular riding on imperfect roads.

There are many tires that perform this well, but none are as flat resistant and durable as the GP4000SII

The Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II 700c Road Tire is the longest lasting road tire with the best puncture protection I have used. I have been using these tires for the last 6 years and I usually get 4 to 5 thousand miles on a set with rotating them every 1000 miles. I get the least amount of cuts then any other tire I have used in these tires.

Ridden this tire from April till October over 1000 miles. 220 lbs rider averaging 16 mph in hilly riding. Will switch frt to rear and add tire sealant to get another 500-1000 miles on the old ones. Then mounting the the ones I just bought for another 2000. Found running 100 lbs frt and rear for my climbing days and 85 frt90 rear for long days.

Best handling puncture resistance
by Anonymous
Cycling Enthusiast

My favorite tires... their performance is good enough for road races, and this is paired with puncture resistance as good as some of the clunker tires like gatorskins. FYIW for anyone considering 25s vs 23s, I switched to 25s a few years ago and have never looked back!

The gold standard
by 612randy
Minneapolis, MN

These tires are the gold standard in road tires. A handful might be lighter, faster or less expensive but youd be hard pressed to find all three. They setup easily on my wide rims and I run them at a low psi for a fast and comfortable ride. Theyre sturdy enough for crushed limestone and the early season potholes in Minnesota.
